For installing product line engineering in practice, strategies are needed that are composed of smaller steps where, on the one hand, each of them represents a well-defined move towards the ultimate goal of a well-functioning product line organization but, on the other hand, does not bear unmanageable risks. Hence product line approaches like Fraunhofer PuLSETM must define such steps, as well as provide a framework that supports their systematic combination into a tailored organizational strategy for installing product line engineering. This paper presents one step of such a strategy that focuses on the design activity. A wellknown model-based design approach from the automotive domain is extended by the concept of variability and decision modeling. The resulting method has been prototyped and validated in a controlled environment. The measured results show that the method can be easily applied and leads to an effort distribution analogously to the typical product line curve.
